THe Details


Practical and motivating courses that cater for interests and aspirations.  The new Pre-Tech programmes have been designed to support practical experience, progression skills and knowledge alongside English and Maths GCSEs. The Vocational units are skills-based and will prepare for next steps within technical programmes once completed.

The vocational courses are level 1 courses to enable core techniques and skills to be developed alongside business and communication development to prepare for future employability demands. 


Those starting in September will enrol on a Certificate.

The mandatory core units run alongside vocational pathways to ensure learners are preparing for next steps as soon as they start studying. Developing progression plans with support and core skills are part of this work to ensure all individuals have the tools to be successful.
